Problem with SIN mission

Hello all

My problem is this: I get the sin mission to Dark Valley, the bandit base while they keep my equipment, and I do the mission (three times now). However, every time I return to Sin in their hideout, no matter which way I come in) the game freezes as I approach Veles the Sin leader. I cannot figure out why, since I completed the mission(s). What am I missing? Is doing the SIN mission absolutely necessary to keep playing LA? If so, what is going on that the game keeps freezing at that point. Any and all help appreciated.

Problem with SIN mission

Did you kill any SIN back in the Cordon before you got to Darkscape?
Some people report that it bugs their game or causes SIN to go hostile.

No, I did the missions by the book and killed no Sin (Can't say te same for the military). However, if I recall, I was supposed to find an underground base? LOL I think I just got the papers and headed back to Veles, the Sin leader. Where the **** is the underground base? And if it keeps crashing on my return to sin, I wonder what's causing it. Thanks, Tejas.

Problem with SIN mission

Since I was a Tester for Dez0wave's "Lost Alpha" for two years, most of
that prior to the release, it's sometimes hard for me to remember how
it was and how it may have changed after the public release. There were
two places that SIN wanted the player to go. One way the forgotten lab
in Rostok Factory ( west of the Cordon ) and the other in the Dark Valley
at the X-18 Lab underneath the Monolith Base. I think I always did the
Rostok Factory one as 1 of the 2 choices for proving to Duty I was worthy
of joining, which was before going to Darkscape. I'm assuming it's the
X-18 Lab you need to go which is found in an outside stairwell going to
a basement area in the rear courtyard area of the Monolith Base. Not
sure I can help you with your crash. You might try posting your bug here:

AFAIR:

Returning to Veles without the docs might be one of those 'no dialogue' whoopsies that crash the game. Getting the docs is not so hard - more detail here: http://lost-alpha.wikia.com/wiki/Get_file_about_experiments

It is entirely possible to enter the Darklab (X-18) without shedding a drop of Monolith blood (or your own), PROVIDED you do it while a "Bandit" before shafting Borov. For this to work, you need advance knowledge of the X-18 keycode.

Should get you through it.

If you DO choose a bit of plot subversion as a 'Bandit', it helps greatly to fit your BJ with nightvision. Better yet, take the free SSP-99M from Yantar.

If you are unfamiliar with how to get such goodies from Yantar early on, read this :-

Have much fun, and success.
